After the presidential elections, I received phone calls from persons in San Diego, Tijuana, Los Angeles, Fresno, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, etc. asking me four basic questions:
- What I thought about Trump being elected President?
- Why & how was Trump elected?
- What will happen to us?
- What can we do to protect ourselves?
Some callers expressed concern, fear, dismay, alarm, horror, panic, & terror. Others simply stated, “I am going to arm myself & defend my family!”
